‘Suspicious incidents’ part of reason for surveillance at Langley shooting site

Police are still on scene at an Aldergrove property where a man was shot last month

A combination of a recent shooting and other suspicious incidents in the area are why Langley RCMP have stationed a patrol car and put up surveillance cameras near an Aldergrove property.

As of this week, an RCMP cruiser remained on scene at the site of a shooting Nov. 21 in the 26900 block of 48th Avenue, said Sgt. Rebecca Parslow.

“It’s not entirely abnormal,” she said of the surveillance and continued police presence.

The victim, a 47-year-old man, was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries after the early morning shooting.

The site of the shooting is fairly isolated, down a dead-end road west of 272nd Street, in rural northern Aldergrove.

“There have been some suspicious incidents in the area,” said Parslow.

Coupled with the shooting, that’s why the RCMP decided to deploy the cameras. If anything else happens in the area, they’ll hopefully provide some evidence, she said.

She said there was no evidence of illegal activity on the property, and that the victim has been cooperating with the investigation. He has been receiving help from RCMP Victim Support Services, said Parslow.

There is also no link between the shooting and the man found with stab wounds on Dec. 7 in Milner. That victim refused to speak to the RCMP.
